Kim's Workshop

My first workshop was one day, given by Kim Lordier. Her subject was how to achieve glowing light. She had three demos of the various direction of light. Here I "attempted" to do the same picture she did in the "back lit" demo, using her photo reference. Of course, mine did not come out anywhere near like hers! But it was a good lesson, and I think I'm getting the idea.
We had the option of using her photos for studying the other two directions of light, but I brought one of my own that showed side lighting. It also had a path in it, which I need help with, and I got some good hints. I enjoyed the workshop very much, and I was pleased the subject was about light, as it is something I was wanting to learn.

I like the bottom one with the trees. You got the "light" in this one I think.

I'm in love with the colors of the first picture. Never know I was such a pastel person.

I'm aware when the artist is aware of where the light source comes from. Chiraroscuro in the great artists has always been of interest to me.
